DSWD resumes online registration for educational aid

·1 min read

THE Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) will resume its online registration for educational assistance starting Saturday noon, September 10, 2022.

Those who have already registered are discouraged from registering again to avoid double entry of names and to give way to other students who have not yet received their educational assistance, said DSWD Regional Director Shalaine Marie Lucero.

Lucero said the registration is open until they reach their quota.

The DSWD launched the Educational Cash Aid program, which will run for six weeks from August until September, to provide cash to indigent elementary, high school, and college students.

In Central Visayas, 59,000 individuals have registered for the program but 13,000 of them were disqualified as it turned out that they are members of the DSWD’s Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps). (PAC, TPT)
